Macaroni and Cheese for Two

Macaroni and Cheese for Two

 Made  times

"THIS IS one of those dishes that our family calls 'a Mama recipe'. My mother rarely consulted a cookbook, so when asked for a recipe, she could only estimate. I've worked out the ingredients to make it for two, but it can easily by doubled. It's simply a good, wholesome dish most folks seem to enjoy. --Betty Allen East Point, Georgia"

I'm usually more a fan of creamy mac and cheese, but every now and then I get a hankering for the firm, slightly dry, baked-custard variety. This fit the bill perfectly - it was enough to satisf...

This was my first time doing Thanksgiving, and I needed a recipe like Mom used to make (before she got sick) because mac and cheese casserole is required at every celebration in my extended fami...

I quadrupled this recipe and used whole wheat rotini in a 9x13 dish for a dinner party. Turned out great! Oh, I also sprinkled some paprika on top for some color. What I love about this recip...

This is my Mom's recipe minus the cayenne and black pepper mixed in with the egg and milk.....brought back memories. If you top with more cheese or bread crumbs it may stop the noodles on top f...

This recipe was super easy and quick to prepare. Although not as creamy as I generally like mac-n-cheese, it was still very tasty. I will definitely make again.

YUMMY Ole fashioned mac and cheese!!! It came out perfect. I added a little more salt. This is not a creamy mac and cheese.... the flavor is just like grandma used to make!!!!

Enjoyed the recipe! I did follow some of the other reviews suggestions. I omitted the butter, and then added an extra 1/2 C of cheese on top. Next time I think I will add some bread crumbs on to...

I found this recipe by entering in ingredients I had on hand. Great, simple, classic mac and cheese recipe. I added more cheese and milk. Boyfriend loved it.
